After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon, Post #3


I've finished my first book for Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon, Beth Kephart's The Heart is Not a Size. It's a YA book about friendship, and how, in Beth's words from her Acknowledgments, "we need truth tellers as our friends."

I'm looking at my pile of books, and I'm not sure what I'm going to move on to next. I'm going to run my errands and see what book is calling my name when I get home!

Happy reading!

One book done already? You;re doing great. Here's a little poem for the day:

If I could have one wish,
I know what I would say.
Just give me my books,
And let me read all day.

Happy Reading.

--from your cheerleader, Margot
